The Franklin's Gull flew in to the west side of the inlet at the eastern end of 
Plum Beach around 10:15, stayed for about 10 minutes , then flew east and 
landed on the beach before the area where there are many boats. I had taken 
Sean's advice and waited on the bridge along the paved walkway from about 7:45 
to 10 with no luck. This is a good view point but very noisy as it's next to 
the Belt parkway. 
A Binghampton birder (Ken?) saw the bird fly in and called me - thanks again. 
For me the most striking thing about the bird on ground was the smaller bill, 
the general black and white look towards the wing tips (rather than black with 
a couple of white spots), and from the rear, the less extensive black hood. It 
did not seem to be paired up as per previous observations, although it was with 
a small group(5-8) of Laughing Gulls. It flew off by itself to join another 
small group of laughing Gulls on the beach
